About: Mel was married to Stephen from June 6, 2007 to December 15, 2017. The former couple was locked up in a bitter divorce battle
Mel was locked up in a bitter divorce fight that saw her pay to pay former husband Stephen £ 287,000 in legal fees when their bitter lawsuit finally ended.
The couple has custody of their daughter Madison, seven.
Judge Mark Juhas, judge in Los Angeles, threw away both restrictive orders that the fighting couple had tried to slap at each other.
Instead, the singer and Belafonte reached a mutual agreement to stay at least 200 meters apart.
The couple was also instructed to set aside £ 900,000 (about £ 450,000 each) when selling their former matrimonial home of £ 6.5 million to repay the taxes due for 2016.
